Whether it's an ongoing struggle or an unexpected disruption, counselling can be a valuable service in gaining new insights and skills. People seek counselling for a variety of reasons including:
Depression and Anxiety
Problematic substance use
Life transitions such as changes in one's family, career or health
Both short and long term counselling services are provided and tailored to the unique needs of the individual. Counselling can focus on specific goals or skills, while others benefit from longer term, insight oriented therapy. In Social Work we often speak about "starting where the client is at" which emphasizes the importance of working collaboratively to address your goals and desire for change.
Child & Adolescent Therapy
Our children and youth are not immune to stress, mental health issues, trauma and loss. This is a painful reality for many families who are struggling with how to best support their children in the face of such challenges. Individual and family counselling is available to address issues such as:
Anxiety (separation anxiety, social anxiety, specific phobias, OCD, generalized anxiety and panic attacks)
Depression (including self-harm and suicidal ideation)
adjustment to divorce and separation
I have extensive experience in the field of Child & Adolescent mental health and am skilled in providing both individual and family therapy for children and youth. Services are tailored to the unique needs of each family and can be a combination of both individual and parent sessions.
If distance and scheduling is getting in the way of making it to appointments, online counselling is a great option! Video sessions are available through Inkblot therapy.com. Please contact me for more information.
